Sojourner Truth was a woman set on fire by a sense of faith, strength, and passion. Her life had an impact on a world full of injustice. Sojourner Truth was a woman who’s story from over a century ago still has an impact on our lives today. It is my pleasure to share her faith story on this podcast.
In such a short podcast, it was impossible to do Sojourner Truth’s story justice. There is so much more to know about her life and legacy. Many fabulous resources tell her story, the most famous of which is her own book, Narrative of Sojourner Truth. Here is a list of resources I used in researching this podcast:
- Truth, Sojourner. Narrative of Sojourner Truth. Penguin: New York, 1998. First published 1850.
- DeRusha, Michelle. 50 Women Every Christian Should Know. Baker Books: Grand Rapids, MI, 2014.
- McDonough, Yona Zeldis. Who Was Sojourner Truth? Penguin Workshop, New York, New York, 2015.
